Pathways to Wellness

Today we met with Janet Ziegler for our first Pathways to Wellness meeting.  We learned about the Health/Wellness Model and the conscious management of the Body/Mind/Spirit continuum and maintaining cell integrity.  We received a lot of information; some we had heard before and some that was new.  Wonderful presentation Janet!

The goals for the participants of this group will be to learn how to effectively manage stress, relax at will, re-pattern unhealthy thoughts and behavior patterns, utilize the mind in promoting healthy behaviors, make healthy dietary choices, avoid the impact of chemical substances in the environment, enhance exercise capacity, utilize visualization in achieving health goals and lastly, maintain a wellness-supportive worldview.

We are off to a good start.  The next meeting will be Tuesday, April 25th at 10:00am in the library.  At that class we will be working on Stress Management and Immunity by strengthening the immune system and the creative use of imagery.

All are welcome! The classes are free!  Hope to see you there!

Our Memories of a local library….

OLD YARDLEY LIBRARY ON AFTON LAKE, YARDLEY, PA

Just saying or thinking about the library brings such warm and happy feelings to me.  I remember walking my younger brother to the library in my hometown to assist him in getting his first Library Card. I think he was about seven years old and there is almost a ten year difference between us.  I was a regular at the library and was well known by the librarian, especially in the summer. I did not need to have a parent’s signature back then. I would take a large brown paper grocery bag and fill it up with books which I would return in a week, way before they were due. Our library was by the town lake so was very picturesque as well.  My brother had watched me do this for a few weeks and decided he would like to try out the library also.  So I was his escort and since this was his first time I thought we should limit the books he checked out.  Whew did I have a load of books that week.  So much for limiting!

I spoke with my brother recently, and he brought up his first visit to our local library.  I was also surprised to learn that he still has his library card and carries it in his wallet.

You never know when someone is taking note of all the reading you do. Inspire someone!
